Jefferson County, FL (August 14, 2018) – Three men were injured on Sunday morning when they were ejected from their vehicle following a serious rollover crash. The Florida Highway Patrol announced that the crash happened around 11:30 a.m.
The accident happened on Interstate 10 east in Jefferson County on the day in question. 23-year-old Kevin Billa was identified as the driver, who had been driving east on the Interstate when he suddenly traveled off the roadway and collided with a guardrail.
The impact was so forceful that it pushed the car across several lanes of traffic, where it then overturned. The vehicle then traveled down into a ditch and overturned as it struck multiple trees.
There was a total of three men in the vehicle, none of which were wearing seatbelts at the time. They were all ejected from the vehicle. Billa and one of his passengers, 26-year-old Edy Ramos-Andra, received serious injuries. His other passenger, 24-year-old Alwin Buesco-Cardona, was treated for minor injuries.
Billa is now being charged with driving without a license and more in relation to the accident.
